The Official Mickey Mouse Gas Mask from the 1940s.
It was designed by Walt Disney to help children with the fear of using it.

The Antarctic Snow Cruiser on the drive towards the ship that would take it south to the Pole. The vehicle provided living space and laboratories to five scientists. Unfortunately, it was found to have no traction on snow unless driven in reverse and was eventually abandoned. 1939
